How should I prepare for my personal career guidance meeting?

Our meeting will work best if you can locate yourself in a quiet place, where you are able to shut the door if needed, giving you the privacy to talk openly, free from distraction and potential disturbance.

Avoid interruptions by turning off PC or mobile notifications or other forms of contact.

It would be useful if you have a pen and paper to use during our call, as I may ask you to jot things down or even draw things.

If you have any post-its available, you could use these too.

During our session, we might decide to access to the internet, so please confirm if this is possible, although I will also send relevant links after our call.

 

You might like to have a glass of water to hand; talking can be thirsty work!

Before we begin, it can help to take a moment to check in with yourself. Here is one way to do this:

  • Sit in a grounded position, with your feet on the floor.
  • Check your back is straight yet relaxed. Now, focus on your breathing.
  • Inhale for the count of four, hold that breath for four, and then exhale for the count of four.
  • Repeat this three times.
  • Now, you are ready to begin!
